During the latest Republican debate, Donald Trump dismissed the idea of building a U.S.-Canada border, saying, “We have far less problem with that border than we do with our southern border.”
Trump was responding to a question by Telemundo journalist María Celeste Arrarás, who questioned his push for a U.S.-Mexico border over a U.S.-Canada border.
Arrarás stated that the Canadian border posed a more significant threat, according to U.S. officials, and then asked, “When it comes to national security and the threat of terrorism, why does Mexico need a wall, and Canada doesn't?”
Initially commenting on the "massive" length of the border being an issue, Trump then went on to say, “It is not our big problem. Our big problem is not only people coming in, and in many cases the wrong people, it's the tremendous amount of drugs that are coming in.”
While some think this is good news:
Oh thankfully Trump doesn't want to build a wall between the US and Canada. YOU'LL NEVER KEEP ME OUT OF 'MERICA TRUMP.— Chelsea Rose (@Chelsea__Rose) February 26, 2016
Others are more concerned about the idea of Trump winning the election:
@ramaxe1965 Actually, it's quite terrifying to think we could end up with a President Trump. Canada will build a wall to keep us out— WiseGuyEddie (@WiseGuyEddie) February 12, 2016
In which case they think a U.S.-Canada border wall is actually called for:
If the PM is anti-bullying, and Trump gets elected, does that mean Canada has to build a pink wall against the US?— MK (@moonklutz) February 26, 2016
Can't wait for Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, to start building a wall to keep Trump out.— Al Mayne (@AL_MAYNE) February 26, 2016
Insisting that Canadians will build their own wall:
Which could be an issue for Americans trying to flee the country:
Thank goodness Trump is against building a wall against Canada, because that's where many of us are headed if he wins— Kevin Kelleher (@kpkelleher) February 26, 2016
Canada’s going to have to build a wall to keep out Americans fleeing a Trump Presidency. Big ice wall, with a giant moat of boiling syrup— Burrito Justice (@burritojustice) February 26, 2016
If Trump is elected, Mexico & Canada will both pay for & build a wall because there will be a mass exodus of people leaving this country.— Echo & me (@HannahGalaxy) February 14, 2016
But jokes aside, at least now we know where Trump stands:
Donald Trump has clarified he has no plans to wall-off Canada meaning his mexico-wall isn't about immigration, its about NO BROWN PEOPLE— Francis Brian Shaw (@FBSisnothere) February 26, 2016
